Support this Weekend's Mobilization to End the War


In just two days, United for Peace and Justice will bring huge numbers of people into the streets of Washington to tell the White House and Congress: It's time to end this disastrous war, bring all our troops home, and expend all the resources necessary to fully rebuild the devastated Gulf Coast.

We very much hope you can make it to DC this weekend -- but whether or not you'll be joining us in the streets, you can lend critically needed support to this mobilization by making a donation today.

We have three easy ways to donate:

by credit card online at http://www.unitedforpeace.org/donate
by credit card over the phone at 212-868-5545
by sending a check or money order to UFPJ, P.O. Box 607, Times Square Station, New York, NY 10108
We are in the final push in our preparations for the weekend, and your support is still needed. We have planned a broad-based weekend of events, with dozens of opportunities for participants to get involved and take action that will help us to achieve our goal: to end the war in Iraq.

Your donations today will not just help cover the costs of this weekend's mobilization; they will help us build on the momentum of this mobilization through a series of follow-up actions already scheduled for the fall. Your donation will help us to create the loud, strong, sustained public outcry needed to persuade the Bush Administration and Congress that the war in Iraq needs to end — NOW, and that attention must be paid to pressing domestic issues, such as Hurricane Katrina relief.

Here’s how you can support the UFPJ September Mobilization in Washington, D.C. on September 24-26:

1. Donate Now.
Now, more than ever, we need you to make the most generous contribution possible in support of our work. Please give as much money as you can afford — we will use it efficiently and effectively.

2. Become a Sustainer.

You can also come to the UFPJ Information Tent on the Washington Monument Grounds for the 8:30AM Volunteer Orientation this Saturday, or stop by any time during the day to plug into a volunteer task.

Yours, for peace and justice,

Leslie Cagan

I hope someone has taken into consideration that the aftermath of RITA will consume the entire media in the US and maybe around the world on Saturday.

My fear is that the demo will be dismissed as unimportant while the Pres "handles" RITA's wake. This may actually make this absolute fraud "look/appear" as if he knew what he is doing.

This weekend belongs to Rita.

The mainstream media can't report two stories at once. Everyone knows that. Haven't you noticed Iraq barely gets mentioned in the wake of Katrina, despite the increasing death and destruction that goes on there.

Cindy who? Treasongate? What's a Downing Street Memo?

The sickening Bush beat goes on.

By the way George, you coward, you fool....where's Osama?

You're right, of course. The following item, written by George Whitney and published by Information Clearinghouse, is on the mark:

No Exit -- Descending into hell with George Bush

The bodies of the mangled and bloated corpses are no where to be found on America's news programs. Like the countless dead in Iraq they're purged from the coverage and stripped from the public record. They've been replaced by the well-scrubbed visage of the Potemkin-president issuing his comforting words for his people.

"New Orleans will rise again," Bush crowed, invoking the worn phraseology of the slave era.

For a White House that prides itself on appearances and spends over $62 million per year on public relations firms; the Bush monologue on national TV was a dismal performance. His limp promises of restoration, all ringing with the same free-market timbre that has left Kabul and Baghdad in a shambles, fell well short of the mark. The ruinous affects of his tenure are now everywhere to be seen and even the media's impenetrable smokescreen seems to be lifting.

Disaster follows Bush like a shadow. It is the one inescapable fact that haunts his 58 years, and it should provide some meager relief for those who believe that he and his vile regime cannot be brought down.

Just look around; Iraq, Afghanistan, Enron, Cheney's energy-papers, the deficits, the courts, the UN, Israel-Palestine, New Orleans, the corporate-corruption, the war-profiteering, the incompetence, the lies; everything Bush touches is reduced to rubble. No institution, however protected, can withstand the onslaught of his withering company; the vast wreckage extends in every direction.

"Character is fate," Marcus Aurelius said; it is a straight line drawn from a man's birth to his final hour. Some men will fail in everything they do and there is no force in the universe that can alter their destiny.

Harken, Arbusto, Spectrum, the Texas Rangers and now the United States of America; all following the predictable downward spiral into the muck. The trajectory cannot be amended by simply putting down the bottle. Failure is an indelible blotch, like the mark of Cain, forever embossed on the soul of its victim. Its part of Bush's genetic-code, as integral to the whole mechanism as the cocky-drawl or the lumbering gait.

The Project for the New American Breakdown is headed for the political land-fill scuttled by its luckless wagon-master corporate-George.

The street scenes of submerged New Orleans, now littered with the unattended carcasses of blue-faced victims is the Bush legacy. It can be softened with the dulcet prose of the New York Times or air-brushed by the feigned-compassion of TV-anchormen, but the truth keeps popping its head up through the weeds revealing the devastation.

New Orleans won't go away; won't disappear "into that good night." America's beloved Southern port-o-call has been vanquished by neglect, pummeled by the erosion of its wetlands and the weakening of its levees. Now, the tens of thousands of refugees are fleeing the previously thriving metropolis much like the people of Falluja, Tal Afar and Samarra.

In Iraq the effects of Hurricane George can be seen throughout the Sunni heartland. Rumsfeld continues to storm through Iraq's underbelly like Tecumseh Sherman on his march to the sea leaving only tent cities and desolation behind. The relief agencies are simply overwhelmed by immensity of the human catastrophe. There's no way they'll be able to meet the people's needs.

Bush, of course, just shrugs off such sentimentality. What possible difference could their suffering make? Besides, there's no longer even a trace of a plan for Iraq, just the fiendish abuse of force and the drunken-elation in slaughter.

None of it makes sense, nor should it. The nation is sinking in an ocean of hubris and delusion. Reason and decency have vanished into the desert sirocco; only the rapture of utter destruction persists.

There's no stopping this juggernaut. Washington's ruling-elite are hell-bent to continue; flailing away at every obstacle in their murderous path. This week it's Iraq, next week it's Syria; what possible difference could it make? America won't be digging out after this orgy of terror anyway. Bush has led us to the brink. The economy is teetering, our alliances are crumbling, and the nation is ambling towards disaster. All the while, the Dear Leader has fixed his vision on the deepest part of the quicksand and trudges onward.

America won't dodge the Reaper this time.

"Character is fate". Our future is hopelessly shackled to the dwindling fortunes of our vacuous president, George Walker Bush.

The name of that article's author is Mike Whitney. I guess watching too many appearances by George have completely addled my already tired brain.

Best wishes to all who will be at Saturday's march, many of us will be with you in spirit.

My 74 year old mother wrote the following parody. This could be chanted during the march, or perhaps written on some signs ... : )

Georgie Porgie puddin' and pie
    sent troops to Iraq and let them die.
When Katrina came out to play
    Georgie Porgie ran away.

That is brilliant! Your mother is very creative!

my love to you and her-
Kate M.

of colorful handout sheets too!

ok, I know you are in no mood for PollyAnna, but you better brace yourself for a dose:

Below is the letters I've been publishing on http://congress.org and I encourage everyone to do the same.

I send them systematically to Henry Hyde, Dana Rohrbacker and anyone else who voted down the resolution of inquiry.

I send them also to so called democrats who aren't against this war.

"Congressman,

With due respect, your reasons for voting against the Resolution of Inquiry into the Downing Street Memos sir, are pure "bullshat".

I'm amazed that you had the prescription to vote favorably to putting Clinton trial for lying about a blowjob, but have seemingly no interest in putting anyone on trial for lying more than 2 countries into a disaster of a war.

Such a visible disrespect for the constitution is determined as none other than.....Deriliction of Duty.

You should know Congressman, that this is no longer a political issue and is an issue of whether you are for the constitution or AGAINST it.

The proof is spelled out right in plain view, Congressman and we are NEVER going to forget how you voted.

You may not choose to see it, but the whole COUNTRY KNOWS WE WERE LIED TO and the war was a pathetic, bull-headed smear campaign.

And you are no longer upholding the constitution by refusing to hold accountable the executive branch....Tell me now, are these people in the witness list frivilous un-named sources?

Is it the fact that Britain and federal authorities do not dispute the memo's contents, nor its evidence that we were lied to?

Or is it the fact you are more loyal to your cronies, and big business, than to our governing law of the land.

Well I beseech you Congressman. You must represent your constituents first and america at large first, with all other matters second.

You and those congressional democrats who voted against the resolution of inquiry, WILL BE held accountable. You may not know it yet, but we are going to fire every last one of you.

That is unless you ADMIT your guilt, for being a traitor to the foundation of this country, and fully support a resolution of inquiry on the downing street meetings.

Which took place on 10 Downing Street, between several high placed officials, traitors, and oil barons no less.

AND IF YOU THINK YOUR VOTE BEFORE THE PEOPLE DOES NOT MATTER SIR, THINK ABOUT THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS WHO DIED IN THIS WAR. IT DOES MATTER.

And it further matters before god what you have done, and what you have chosen. Remember that when you turn on your huge screen TV.

YOU MAY THINK THE BATTLE IS OVER, BUT NOW IT HAS JUST STARTED. You can not ignore the constitution.

Every sniveling lie, every "mocking" gesture at thousands who lay dying in our country and in Iraq will be taken for what it is....A deriliction of duty. And every sniveling retort and propaganda you propose, sir, makes our founding fathers spin in their graves about how much you have sold america out.

The age of accountability is coming. But its coming for the neocons and those who spit on our bill of rights, not for anyone else.

And keep in mind I support bringing freedom. And I only support that when the cause is just, not based on proven disinformation or lies.

Yours in both ways heaven or hell,
Danny Moine"
Its going to be our force which brings them down, not anything else, remember this. Because no one would have known there was Diebold, or fishy voting or anything if it wasn't for the blogosphere to begin with.

Danny

To hell with 'em, LETS GET DOWN AND DIRTY!!!!!!!!
